We’re absolutely swooning over this new dad’s song for his baby girl.
Matt Finch, who boasts that he isn’t “great with soppy daddy stuff” but still wanted to do something special for his newborn wrote a sweet song for his daughter about the adventures kids might go on in their dreams.
Finch explained to Birmingham Mail, “I used to be in a band when I was younger, so one of my friends half jokingly challenged me to write a song for Ivy and I thought I’d give it a go.” We’re so glad he did!
Finch was hesitant to share the video on social media, but after his wife Abigail saw it, she said he had to share it because it was beautiful.
“Ivy’s Dream Song,” performed in the adorable video above, has reached thousands of people all over the world, making it a viral hit.
While it’s clear that Ivy was his inspiration, Finch explained she truly did help write the song! He said, “I like to think that Ivy helped. I was looking after her at about 11 o’clock at night and she was nodding to the bits she liked and stopped to the bits that she didn’t!”
Ivy, who is only a little over 2 weeks old, now has a lullaby to call her own, and we can’t wait for the inevitable follow-up song, “Ivy’s Up All Night.”
